There are seven games on the NBA schedule for Tuesday night and our experts are betting the total, spread and props in three specific matchups:

  • 7:30 p.m. ET: Miami Heat at Toronto Raptors 
  • 7:30 p.m. ET: Dallas Mavericks at New Orleans Pelicans 
  • 9 p.m. ET: Los Angeles Lakers at Denver Nuggets 

See what bets they’re making below.

Odds as of Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET

John Ewing: Mavericks at Pelicans

  • Spread: Mavericks -4
  • Over/Under: 232.5
  • Time: 7:30 p.m. ET

Player props are consistently exploitable by sharp bettors. With lower limits and fewer gamblers wagering on them, player props do not get the same attention from oddsmakers as the spread or total, which usually leads to softer lines.

One player prop that has my attention on Tuesday is Lonzo Ball over/under 4.5 rebounds.
